As a workforce development board, Charlotte Works has one key goal: to provide opportunities that prepare people for education and available careers while connecting businesses to skilled workers. We do this by building relationships and trust within our community, which includes bringing partners together and coordinating resources that meet the needs of Charlotte’s economy today, and in the future.
At Charlotte Works, we believe individuals and communities prosper when residents have access to gainful employment and business have access to a skilled workforce; that way, the people who live or work in our region have the opportunity to thrive. This is also in accordance with the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). This legislation was signed into law in 2014 to help Americans of all ages and skill sets find high-quality jobs and develop long-term careers. It also assists employers in hiring and retaining skilled workers.
By closing the gap between what local employers want and the skills workers have, we can provide direction and leadership to the greater Charlotte metro area. Learn more by exploring the programs and services we provide for:
